Wood Buffalo-Aransas Flock Update

Wade Harrell, U.S. Whooping Crane Recovery Coordinator and Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Manager has posted the final Whooping crane update of the season.

Wade estimates that less than 20% of the Whooping crane population is still on the Texas coast wintering area and that number should quickly dwindle over the next week or so.

    Go Whoopers! Get to Wood Buffalo National Park in Canada and increase the last remaining natural whooping crane population! After years of sacrifice & work, Robert Porter Allen found the last nest and would be so happy to know there are over 300 whooping cranes now! Thank gosh the oil spill didn’t hurt the whooping cranes… Too close for comfort…

    Thank you again, Heather, for the up-date on the Western flock of Whoopers! Sounds and looks like things are going pretty well with the clean-up from the “Y” City Oil Spill. Praying for both the Eastern and Western flocks to have a good productive Spring nesting season
